Clutch Premiere “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)” Music Video


Bluesy hard rock veterans Clutch have premiered their new single “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)” online. The song was produced and mixed by Tom Dalgety (Ghost, Royal Blood) and was road tested live by the band over a dozen times across the past half a year or so.

The accompanying music video was directed by David Brodsky (Killswitch Engage, Cannibal Corpse) and employs the technology of the Unreal Engine. The song is expected to appear on the band’s forthcoming thirteenth full-length album, which they recorded this past October.

For now, a limited edition box set has been launched in conjunction with this single and can be purchased here. Speaking of this new track, the band’s vocalist/guitarist Neil Fallon commented:

“Early in 2021, I learned the Boss Metal Zone pedal schematic was being presented as “proof” that the Covid-19 vaccine had an electronic component to communicate with 5G cellular networks. It was, of course, nonsense. It sounded like a Philip K. Dick premise. I didn’t want to write a song specific to Covid-19 vaccines, so I went with the Philip K. Dick angle (again). “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” came to mind (replicants, in particular, representing what is real and not real, or is there a difference at all?). The video makes no secret that this is an homage to Philip K. Dick and a future where we have distortion coursing through our veins.”
